fff (Fucking Fast File-Manager)


A [WIP] simple file manager written in bash.

  • It's Fucking Fast 🚀
  • Minimal (~100 lines of bash)
  • Smooth Scrolling (using vim keybindings)
  • File Operations (copy, paste, rename, cut, etc)
  • Basic Search


  • bash 3.2+
  • program handling (non-text): xdg-open (not needed on macos)
  • copying: cp
  • moving, renaming, trash: mv
  • creating dirs: mkdir


  1. fff or fff path/to/dir, fff ../../, fff /usr/share/
  2. optional: alias f="fff"
